THE BLACK DEATH PART THREE 10-27-2017

Hmm, I checked yet again for today’s Madagascar Plague deaths and infections. I said one of the key indications things are getting out of control would be when “the powers that be” start to suppress information.

The last figures are 124 dead and 1192 cases listed on October 25th, some two days ago.

THE POWERS THAT BE HAVE NOT RELEASED ANY PLAGUE INFORMATION SINCE THEN. This can only mean, in my opinion, the rate of increase in both dead and infected is now SKYROCKETING UP.

Yep, the plague is out of control on Madagascar. It has likely spread to one or more of the nine countries listed.

If this wasn’t the case, then “they” wouldn’t be lying. If the information was good, they would release it, but if it is bad, they won’t.

Duck and cover, gang. One of the major criteria I use; namely, when they start lying has now been met.

THE BLACK DEATH PART TWO 10-25-2017

One of the things that will lead to either a TSHTF, or a TEOTWAKI<the end of the world as we know it, scenario is a global disease pandemic. The nature of modern life means global, air travel is widespread. The airlines recycle the air inside their planes as little as possible, since it costs money to do so. The result is we have had several cases where people have become infected with TB simply by breathing the same air an infected person does. Given that the disease we are talking about here is the airborne version of the Black Death, we are very vulnerable to airline passengers becoming infected simply by breathing. It is called a disease vector, or how the disease is spread. One of the ways any disease is spread is called airborne. Airborne simply means you can become infected by the person sitting next to you on the airplane merely breathing, coughing or sneezing.

The following link explains the current situation.

Madagascar Hospitals On High Alert:
‘No One Is Safe’ From The Black Plague

Travelers are being warned to keep their distance from areas of Madagascar affected by the bubonic plague. As the outbreak worsens, some doctors are even warning that “no one is safe” from the disease.

The outbreak of the black plague in Madagascar has so far killed 97 people, and doctors are warning that it will be continuing to spread and worsen, meaning no one is safe. Health officials say the disease, which contributed to the deaths of more than 50 million people in Europe during the Middle Ages, has spread from rural areas to the more urban areas not usually affected. Hundreds of cases are reported on the tropical island every year, but experts are warning the epidemic is “much more dangerous” than in previous years.

Officials have reported infections in 17 of the island nation’s 22 regions since the outbreak started in August. And the number of cases is growing by the day, said Elhadj As Sy, the secretary general of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) as the nation put all hospitals on high alert. The hospitals have also begun implementing preventative measures with attempts to stall the spread of the bacterial infection.

The IFRC said it’s introducing the same “safe and dignified” burial methods used in West Africa during the 2014 Ebola epidemic. This helps cut the chain of transmission by preventing further infections through direct contact with infected corpses.

Last week, less than 60 people had died and around 600 had been infected. Now, there are 911 confirmed cases in addition to the almost 100 deaths. While cases of bubonic plague occur in Madagascar nearly every year, the much more dangerous and deadly pneumonic plague has never been so prevalent. It arrived earlier than expected this year, and has become much more contagious with it being transmitted from person to person through the air. Pneumonic plague is the most life-threatening form of the infection caused by the manifestation of a Yersinia pestis bacterial infection.

Although the black plague can be treated effectively with antibiotics, the incubation time of this bacteria is incredibly short. Death often occurs within 12-24 hours of becoming infected. The bubonic strain of the disease is spread through the bites of infected fleas, whereas the more contagious and deadly pneumonic type is spread through the coughing or sneezing of an infected person.

Elhadj As Sy said that overcoming the epidemic would require long-term help, not “just intervening at the peak and then forgetting about it”. Dr. Manitra Rakotoarivony, Madagascar’s director of health promotion, said: “Normally, people who catch the plague live in poor areas, but people in every place in society are catching the disease.”

Jimmy Whitworth, professor of International Public Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, told The Sun: “It has been a long time since we have seen the plague in an urban environment.

Although health officials have said that internationally, the threat is still fairly low, they’ve also said no one in Madagascar is safe, including travelers, spiking concerns over a possible global pandemic.

If this is really going to turn into a global pandemic, then a certain process will start to happen.

One: the numbers of deaths and infected people will continue to increase in the host country. Further, the RATE of increase will start to increase.

Two. The geographic spread of the disease will begin to happen. The rate of spread will also start to increase.

Three. Given the reality of modern media practices, “it” will only start to be noticed globally when the first cases happen in “countries that matter,” IE FIRST WORLD COUNTRIES.

Four: The disease spread will only become “real” once the first cases are CONFIRMED on global, international airline flights to Europe, the USA or Asia.

Five: The spin control efforts, by the CDC, WHO etc will start to happen, AND THEN START TO FAIL AS THE GLOBAL PANDEMIC GATHERS STEAM.

Yep, we are right on the edge here, gang. If the above pattern is valid, and I think it is, we will know by Halloween whether TSHTF pandemic wise.

Once that happens, the hysteria will be both total and global. Again, the infection vector is airborne, which means coughing, sneezing and breathing will spread the plague.

THE USA HAS NOW LOST IRAQ TO RUSSIA AND IRAN 10-24-2017

Saudi Arabia and Quatar are at each other’s throats right now. There is no possibility that Saudi Arabia and Quatar can take any kind of unified action against Iran. The other thing is Russia has now guaranteed the 2005 Kurdistan borders already agreed to by the Shia Baghdad Central government. Further, Russia has now guaranteed the Kurds access to a pipeline that goes north into Russia, and not west into Turkey. The Shia Central government has just moved to within striking distance of a key pipeline facility from Kurdistan into Turkey.

As for Iran, gang, well Tillerson and Trump can shoot their mouths off all they want to, but it makes no difference on the ground in Iraq. Possession is nine tenths of the law. Iran now controls Iraq everywhere except the 2005 Kurdistan, which again is now guaranteed by Russia.

The “deal” is pretty clear to me, Housecarl. Iran “gets Iraq” either directly under control of the Shia PMU militia, or the Shia “national military,” or the Shia Central government. Russia is telling Iran to back off from trying to take Kurdistan itself.

This is all “spheres of influence” and “buffer zone” level of diplomacy. The Russians are HUGE on buffer zones, which is why they are so enraged that NATO moved east to the Russian borders after Reagan and Bush Senior conned Gorbachev.

Russia is now moving south into Kurdistan in Iraq to counter the NATO move east into the Baltic States, Poland and Romania. Russia has also moved west into the former Uraine.

The “great game” has been going on between Russia and the West for several centuries now, involving the Crimea” ie “charge of the light brigade” in the 1850’s to fighting over Afghanistan with the British. Russia is looking to get a warm water port on either the Indian Ocean, or the Persian Gulf, which they have now done.

Trump and Tillerson have been outplayed by both Russia and Iran.

Finally, looking at naval bang you now have Russia with a naval base in the Black Sea on Crimea, as well as a naval base in Syria, and the deal they made to take over the former British naval base on Cyprus. In addition to all that, Russia now has full access to Basra in Southern Iraq. Russia cut a deal with Iran. Iran cut a deal with Russia.

NATO, THE EU, THE USA HAVE NO DEAL IN IRAQ AT ALL. WE HAVE LOST IRAQ TO THE RUSSIANS AND THE IRANIANS. NOW THAT SYRIA IS RESTORED, MINUS SOME FUTURE FIGHTING TO KEEP THE KURDS IN LINE, THE TRUE NATURE OF THE DECISIVE POLITICAL, ECONOMIC, DIPLOMATIC AND MILITARY DEFEAT THE USA HAS SUFFERED IN IRAQ IS NOW CLEAR TO EVERYBODY ELSE OTHER THAN TRUMP, TILLERSON, THE EU AND NATO.

It hurts when you get your ass kicked. Trump the deal maker simply doesn’t understand the “Great Game” in the Middle East, as played by both Russia and Iran.

CIVIL WAR IN IRAQ 10-20-2017

Gee, what a surprise the Kurds are going to fight to keep the original 2003/2005 borders of Kurdistan from being overrun by Iran’s PMU and the Shia Iraqi Army. I imagine the puddles under the office chairs in the Coaliton conference room are getting rather large by now. So, both the Kurds, the PMU and the Iraqi Army are now using the “heavy stuff” given to them by both NATO and the Americans to fight ISIS on each other.

Hmm, I seem to remember somebody here, oh it was Doomer Doug, saying that when TSHTF it would involve open combat, ie CIVIL WAR, between the PMU, the Iraqi Army and the Peshmerga. Oh my,  I didn’t listen to the Bachelor show but anybody with an IQ above single digits could figure out the PMU, the Iraqi Army and the Kurdish Peshmerga were going to light each other up the first chance they got.

So, who wins now?

First, ISIS is now back in the game big time. The “destruction of ISIS” Trump et al were crowing about now resembles Bush juniors famous Aircraft Carrier speech “Mission Accomplished.” Hmm, that was before the decade long insurgency, followed by the US running away with its tali between its legs, and that was followed by Iran taking near total control of Iraq.

What is happening now is the second phase of the IRANIAN INVASION OF NORTHERN IRAQ INCLUDING KURDISTAN.

Yep, nobody is going to put the toothpaste back in the tube now. And ISIS is just sitting along the Syrian/Iraq border, all 7,000 of them, as in ONE FULL COMBAT BRIGADE. Now where did the destroyed ISIS come up with 7,000 fighters?

ISIS is likely already moving into Northern Iraq to exploit the open warfare between the three elements of the “anti-ISIS coalition” who are no longer fighting ISIS, but now fighting each other, and using all the big boom boom toys we gave them.

There is no going back now. It is full on Civil War now in Iraq. One more thing. Iran now has to stop cutting up bait and start fishing. This means the PMU will now go FULL ON and move into the 2005 border defined Kurdistan. They really have no choice at this point. At a minimum the PMU and Iraqi Army will try to encircle the original Kurdistan and blockade it. OF course when Iran’s proxy forces do that, all hell is going to break out in Northern Iraq. Whatever differences the two Kurdish Pershmerga groups have, both of them agree that the original Kurdistan’s borders, as defined by the Central government in Baghdad in 2005, are sacrosanct and IRAN’S PROXY FORCES OR THE IRAQI ARMY WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO BREACH THEM, OR OCCUPY EITHER ERBIL OR THAT OTHER KURDISH CITY FURTHER SOUTH.

Iraqi army, Shiite militia and Peshmerga exchange heavy fire north of Kirkuk

By Rudaw 26 minutes ago

9:54 p.m.

Peshmerga claims high casualties among Iraqi forces

The western command of the Peshmerga, formerly stationed in western Kirkuk, stated that six Peshmerga were killed among their forces in Friday’s clashes and a number were injured.

The command said they destroyed two tanks, including one Abrams tank, one armored vehicle, and more than 12 Humvees.

They also claim more than 150 casualties among the Iraqi forces, consisting of the Iraqi army, Hashd al-Shaabi, Iranian Revolutionary Guards, and mercenaries, they reported.

Iraq’s Joint Operations Command said the Peshmerga used the MILAN anti-tank system against its forces in Friday’s clashes in Pirde (Altun Kupri). The defense system was given by Germany to the Peshmerga “exclusively” for the war against ISIS, the statement read.
 
It said the MILAN weapons caused material and human losses among the Iraqi forces, calling it a violation.
 
It did not provide details of the number of casualties.

Iraqi forces stated that Altun Kupri is under their full control, also confirmed by Rudaw’s reporters.

7:24 pm

Two journalists injured in Iraq-Peshmerga clashes

A Rudaw cameraman and a Belgian freelance reporter were injured while covering Friday’s clashes in Pirde, also known as Altun Kupri. Their injuries are not life threatening.

Rudaw cameraman Saman Ghani was covering the clashes, where he said the Peshmerga were putting up “a lot of resistance” when a mortar landed near him.

“I was standing by the reporter, Hiwa Husamadin. A mortar shell landed suddenly next to us by the Humvee. [Shrapnel] hit my hand and neck. But thank God I feel very good now,” said Ghani.

Freelance Belgian photojournalist Jonathan Raa was also injured. He told Rudaw he was feeling fine and his thoughts were with the Peshmerga fighting on the frontline.

IRAN WINS IN IRAQ: GAME OVER 10-19-2017

Barzini overplayed his hand and set up the conditions where Iran, Iraq and Turkey unified against the Kurds to prevent chunks of their countries from being included in Barzini’s “new Kurdistan.” Trump, well Iran has concluded Trump is a loud mouthed, con artist and carnival barker who is all mouth and no action. It is clear to anybody in the region that Iran is the real winner here.

Iran has now achieved ALL of its original goals.

One: The creation of a secure land supply route from Iran, through Iraq, through Syria and into Lebanon’s Bekka Valley. The result of that is ongoing, sustained resupply for Hezzbollah in Southern Lebanon. Of course, that brings Northern Israel into a free fire zone for Hezzbollah/Iranian missiles. And that is a HUGE ADVANTAGE for Iran in any potential conflict with Israel. If Israel ever directly attacks Israel, well Iran will open a northern front, from Southern Lebanon and Hezzbollah’s missile batteries into Israel.

Two. Iran is now in full operational control of most of Iraq, using the Shia dominated central government in Baghdad and backed up the Armed Shia Militias, or PMU combined with the predominantly Shia central military.

Three: Iran has made Trump, NATO and Israel look like incompetent fools on the world stage.

Four: Iran has now neutralized any Kurdish attempt to liberate the areas inside of Iran known as Kurdistan. This means Iran now faces no threat of armed resistance from inside its country from the Kurds. Iran still faces a potential threat from Kurdish groups inside of Iraqi Kurdistan. However, they have just neutralized, mostly anyway, because Iraq Kurds are now under threat from Iraq, Turkey and Iran.

Five: Barzini is now a gutted, castrated political enuch who may or may not get whacked in the looming Kurdish Civil War between the two major Peshmerga groups.

Six. The Coalition “War against ISIS’ has now totally collapsed and ISIS will emerge, more lethal, stronger and become a factor in Iraq, at least northern Iraq now.

Seven. Trump is now shown on the global stage to have been outplayed by Iran. The results of that will be CATASTROPHIC as Iraq becomes a part of Greater Iran.

Yep, the USA is a fading empire, run by fools, neo con warmongers, globalists and with a military withered away into impotence by North Korea, China, Russia and Iran.

US COALITION IS NOW ACCESSORY TO WAR CRIMES AGAINST THE KURDS 10-16-2017

The events in Kirkuk, which is really the Iranian invasion of Northern Iraq using Shia Militias, Hezzbollah and the Shia dominated Iraqi Army, is nothing less than a war crime. The Shia Militias are now sacking Kirkuk, as well as executing POW’s by beheading them. Again, it is the US supported “Iranian Shia Militias” supported by the US Coalition in its fight against ISIS.

 

Well, it is clear to me that Iran is the big winner here. This was an IRANIAN INVASION OF NORTHERN IRAQ. Further, as I predicted, things are now getting very nasty. Below is the link to a Rudlaw reporter who CONFIRMS that the Iranian backed Shia militias are EXECUTING PESHMERGA POWS BY BEHEADING THEM. THIS WAR CRIME IS ON THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT AND IRAN. The Kurds will NEVER FORGIVE OR FORGET WHAT IRAN BACKED SHIA MILITIAS HAVE DONE TO THEM IN KIRKUK. THIS IS A BLOOD FEUD NOW FOR THE KURDS.

Yep, the Coalition is now an accessory to WAR CRIMES BY IRANIAN BACKED SHIA MILITIAS. This isn’t over by any means. It has only begun in my opinion. The Iraqi TERRORIST GOVERNMENT TROOPS AND MILITIA NOW FIND THEMSELVES IN A TRAP. It is one thing for them to conquer Kirkuk and the immediate area, but an entirely different thing to go into the rest of Kurdistan with tens of thousands of enraged, well armed Kurdish Peshmerga. Further, I expect summary executions and an internal civil war between the “traitor Kurds” and the vast majority of the Peshmerga and enraged civilians. I also expect a widespread campaign of terror by the Kurds against Iraq, Iran and Turkey. Iran in particular should expect domestic terror attacks inside of Iran by the Kurds that live inside of Iran. The hornet’s nest has been kicked over big time.

Peshmerga commander says Peshmerga withdrawal from Kirkuk was no ‘mistake’

 

Jaafar Sheikh Mustafa, commander of the Peshmerga’s 70 force, told Rudaw the decision to withdraw from Kirkuk was not a “mistake” as they wanted to protect the lives of Peshmerga soldiers.

Mustafa added Iranians led the fight against the Peshmerga in Kirkuk.

“I bear all the responsibilities – in success and failure,” said Mustafa, who led a large number of Peshmerga forces in south Kirkuk.

He dismissed claims that there was “an agreement” between the Peshmerga and the Iraqi army to allow them to enter the city without a fight.

“The Iraqi forces outnumbered the Peshmerga,” he said.

Hashd al-Shaabi beheaded Peshmerga in Kirkuk: Rudaw reporter

A number of Peshmerga were beheaded by Shiite Hashd al-Shaabi militia during confrontations to capture the city of Kirkuk on Monday, according to a Rudaw reporter who witnessed the events.

Rudaw’s Hevidar Ahmed reporting from the scene revealed that, among the Peshmerga killed by Hashd al-Shaabi, some were beheaded.

Ahmed, who reported on the course of clashes between the Peshmerga and Iraqi forces, said that in the beginning the Peshmerga put up a fierce defense. But the Hashd al-Shaabi widened their advance, at which point many Peshmerga were wounded and killed.

He saw the bodies of as many as 10 Peshmerga piled into the back of a pick-up truck. They had all been beheaded.

Wounded Peshmerga were put into another vehicle.

He said the Peshmerga were beheaded by a group of Hashd al-Shaabi trained after the Mosul operation started last year.

Inside Kirkuk, Hashd al-Shaabi have set up security checkpoints inspecting civilians.

Ahmed said he saw instances of supporters of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) being permitted to pass, but others linked with the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) were disarmed and insulted.

Ahmed also said there were looting and burning of Kurdish homes in Tuz Khurmatu by the Hashd al-Shaabi. He reported that 150 Kurdish houses were looted and 15 burned.

He added the bulk of Kurdish families from Khurmatu had fled to Erbil and Sulaimani.

As an eyewitness, Ahmed said much of the frontline was abandoned by the Peshmerga without a fight.

PUERTO RICO FALLS DOWN THE MEDIA MEMORY HOLE 10-10-2017

Like I said would happen, other than the domestic groups, the Democratic Party, the relatives of people actually living in PR, in New York City and New Jersey mostly, nobody is even following PR at this point.

The situation there is still grave, mostly due to the local, corrupt, political morons in local leadership positions.

The following two links, both New York Times, tell me the six month grid restoration estimate is accurate. People are also starting to die from health issues related to the loss of power and the lack of fuel for hospital generators.

84 Percent of Puerto Rico Still Doesn’t Have Power

By CHRISTINA CARONOCT. 10, 2017

It has been nearly three weeks since Hurricane Maria ripped through Puerto Rico, devastating huge swaths of the island. At least 43 people have died, a number that may rise as communication systems improve. The island’s health care workers are facing a crisis exacerbated by diesel fuel shortages and low supplies of medicine.

Here’s a look at the recovery effort by the numbers, and the problems that remain.

Only 16 percent of the island has electricity.

Puerto Rico’s Health Care Is in Dire Condition, Three Weeks After Maria

By FRANCES ROBLESOCT. 10, 2017

CAGUAS, P.R. — Harry Figueroa, a teacher who went a week without the oxygen that helped him breathe, died here last week at 58. His body went unrefrigerated for so long that the funeral director could not embalm his badly decomposed corpse.

Miguel Bastardo Beroa’s kidneys are failing. His physicians at the intensive care unit at Doctors Hospital in Carolina are treating him for a bacterial disease that he probably caught in floodwaters contaminated with animal urine.

José L. Cruz wakes up in the middle of the night three times a week to secure a spot in line for dialysis. His treatment hours have been cut back to save fuel for the generators that power the center.

“Because of the electricity situation, a lot of people died, and are still dying,” said Mr. Figueroa’s daughter, Lisandra, 30. “You can’t get sick now.”

Nearly three weeks after Hurricane Maria tore through Puerto Rico, many sick people across the island are still in mortal peril. The government’s announcements each morning about the recovery effort are often upbeat, but beyond them are hidden emergencies. Seriously ill dialysis patients across Puerto Rico have seen their treatment hours reduced by 25 percent because the centers still lack a steady supply of diesel to run their generators. Less than half of Puerto Rico’s medical work force has reported to work in the weeks since the storm, federal health officials said.
